“Where You Please” (poem / poetry)

I envy you, Ambassador Leaf of One Tree,
As I stare out my window, you dance right past me,
Yes, you’re estranged from your humble beginnings,
Yet, it seems like your freedom and fun have no limits.

You have no guidelines, or conditions of passage,
Nobody treating you like you can’t manage,
I can join you briefly, if I’m exercising,
But I yearn to just travel, no reason, or timing.

Can you remember when the World was your adventure oyster? When your travel opportunities were limited only by your free time, finances and other obligations… when you could choose to go and explore a continent, should you wish, making plans on the fly, if you chose to.

I have been lucky enough to visit many a destination on many a continent, so having a sense of the potential mysteries and wonders I have yet to explore, only serves to make our current restrictions in movement all the more frustrating for me. I long to be free to roam wherever and whenever I please, once again.

Who else is getting a bad case of “explorer’s twitch” right now, or is it just me?!

Also, which places do you recommend me and my family of six exploring, once we’re able to?

Love and Respect always,

Following Whispers.

Author: Following Whispers

Hello, I'm Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing for over two decades. I'm a self-professed geek who can get deep sometimes, but I personally don't take myself too seriously, I just love to have fun, plus inspire myself and others. In my early twenties, I realised that beauty can be born out of not only love, but also pain and other motivations. The more I used writing poetry to make sense of my busy mind, the more it helped me to find a silver lining in even the darkest emotions, experiences, observations and topics; find positivity even in the face of extreme negativity; find strength when I was being forced to feel weak; and find hope that my tomorrows would be brighter. I began publishing my writing in 2018 and currently have three books available Worldwide, including my most recent release "Poems That Move You". I have bared my soul in each and every one of my poems, and I'm confident that you'll get just as much from reading them and relating them, as I did from writing them. Please feel free to look around my site and read the free poems I've shared there, after which, why not pick up a book of mine, drop by Instagram, connect with me and say hello!
